So for my first photography series, I’ve decided to make a documentary style album of Black Artists, that I am close friends with. I consider these individuals beyond talented, but more importantly as great as their Art is, their stories has so much value. I believe this will allow people connect to their Art more. So welcome to Candid Convos! My first sit down is with someone that, I have a high level of respect and appreciation for, allow me to introduce to the world of Trokon , his work and his story.
I didn’t want to force you all to watch a slide-show, so the audio is on a separate player so you can scroll through the images and look at some during a certain time stamp so you know what we are referencing during this Candid Convo.
Trokon’s home and workspace. All paintings are gifts from other Artists who are friends of Trokon.
